Oor hierdie boek:

“The movie I should be making is the making of this movie. This is the stuff that comedy is made of.”

Beloved political cartoonist Dov Fedler had the opportunity in the 1980s to make a lifelong dream come true: Directing a movie. Not that he had a clue how to – but he wasn’t about to let that stop him.
A laugh-out-loud story of pitfalls follows: One with a largely imaginary but very serious language barrier, suspicions of criminal activity including one with a Mexican stand-off, and where Dov has no idea the apartheid government is subsidising the film, Timer Joe 3.
This memoir dives into pop culture past and present, and tales of real people who manage to be larger than life. It also gives a funny, moving portrait of Dov and his family vying to dictate what he can do with his life as a good Jewish son.
